device usage count bug in 2.1.99

I've run into a strange problem with 2.1.99.

I automount several partitions and drives with
autofs, and things used to umount all by themselves
just fine.

But for some strange reason I now get
'umount: /dev/scsi/opti-p1: device is busy'
messages whenever I try to umount the device.

I've already done a:
# cd /proc
# ls -l */fd/|grep misc
to find the culprit, but much to my surprise
there was none!

Now, who removed the neccesary checks that were
in 2.1.98 ? :)
